in this fiscal cliff standoff. we have team fox coverage. mike emanuel is live on capitol hill. but first to ed henry at the white house. ed, it looks as if we are taking the plunge. >> it does, trace. but what i think the white house is hoping here tonight is that lawmakers are going to have some framework by midnight tonight that basically says votes as soon as tomorrow or maybe even in early wee hours, 1:00 a.m., 2:00 a.m. to start moving forward on this so at least the markets get the signal that they will retroactively make sure that the tax rates don't go up. that the massive spending cuts don't take effect. all of this is still hanging in the balance. as you mentioned, conservatives not happy that there are no new spending cuts here. liberals not happy over the fact that they believe the president gave in too much to republicans on taxes setting a threshold of $450,000 a year instead of what they wanted which was 250,000. bottom line the president said that's the art of the compromise today. everyone is not going to get everything that they want. and, in fact, he said the key here is to
